When speaking about God the Father's love, many times
your thoughts on the issue will stem from the way you were treated
by your earthly father. You may have had a father who told you he
loved you and made the effort to show it on a daily basis. On the
other hand, you may have had a father that was physically and
emotionally abusive. So when the Bible speaks about a heavenly
Father, many times we unknowingly make a comparison based upon our
life experiences with our earthly father. God is interested in
humanity and cultivating a relationship with mankind. As an
individual, you are important to God. God knows everything about you
because He formed your body in the womb and made you a living soul.
He knows when you sit down and when you rise up. He knows the
thoughts in your head and the words in your mouth before they're
even uttered. He knows your past and future and continually guides
you. There isn't any place you can go in the universe to get from
God; darkness cannot hide you because His presence is inescapable.
God has great plans for you that include you being born again. God
the Father is not willing that any man should perish and Jesus was
the complete expression of the Father's love when He came to the
earth to die for sins of mankind.
